Ghana Weightlifting Federation revises its constitution

The Ghana Weightlifting Federation (GWF) as part of its growth, expansion and good governance practice has revised its current constitution.

 

 

The revised constitution will now place ownership and power in the hands of the various clubs, Regional Associations and other stakeholders.

 

The previous constitution gave lots of power and authority to the board and the few national team weightlifters.

 

In a letter to the President of the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF), Dr Tamás Aján seeking for approval of the amended constitution, the GWF Secretary General, Mr Hussein Addy stated that the current constitution does not allow for the growth and expansion plans of the GWF.

 

He said according the current governing document; it concentrates too much power and authority in the hands of the President, the Board and the National Team Lifters.

 

He noted that the current constitution does not also give any legal backing to the new weightlifting clubs who will be the bedrock of the game in the country.

 

Mr Addy explained that the new constitution will give the required recognition to other stakeholders such as the newly formed Coaches’ Association, Retired Lifters Association (RLA), Technical Officials Association (TOA), Educational Institutions, Security Services and the expatriate communities involved in the development of weightlifting.

 

The GWF is expected to hold its Annual Congress on February 9, 2016 during which the amended constitution is expected to be adopted by the delegates after IWF’s approval.
